Madonna enthroned with Child and Saints Francis and Anthony from Padova and a donor

The
  altarpiece certainly comes from a Franciscan church, but there are doubts as
  to the identification of the character: it might be Count Leonardo Martinengo
  delle Cossere, patron of the altar of St. Anthony in San Francesco in Brescia
  and client of Romanino in his palace.
  The
  combination of greys is remarkable, as is the classical composure of the
  figures, whose facial features are very attenuated. Unfortunately, previous attempts at conservation
  prevent us from fully appreciating the chromatic and material qualities of
  Romanino's painting.
